ROME (AP) — Authorities say an Alitalia jet on a flight from Madrid safely made an emergency landing at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport after one of its landing gears failed to open.

The airport's operations room said the Airbus 320 landed on the tarmac Sunday night leaning on a wing and its tail after the right-side landing gear didn't work.

It said all 151 passengers and the crew of five left the plane safely through emergency slides about 9 p.m. (1900 GMT) after the pilot reported the problem. No one was injured.

The cause of the malfunction was under investigation.
